  1. Joint86 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    A very rich palette of derivatives for 12 years of aging.
    Good balance of barrel and distillery character.
    Adding water reveals the taste well

      Saturated, fresh. Floral-fruity: cherry blossoms, apricots, lindens, green apples, pears, citrus fruits, a little croissant
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweetness, spices and spices, some minerals, some astringent unripe berries
    • Finish

      Long, warm, woody

    Old style highland whisky; a few drops of water are enough to tickle more aromas; very nice representative of a Blair Athol from the Bourbon barrel. The nice thing about this whisky is that you can smell this whisky for a very long time and always discover new, interesting flavors.

    WOW. ideal summer aperitif. very drinkable despite high ABV. Gentle on the nose, some vanila, citrus, fresh cut grass. Palate: butter cookies, vanilla, some ginger and orange peels. Rose petals, sweet but not cloying with oranges and lemon marmalade and some gentle green herbs. Waxy. Macadamia nuts and some tropical fruits like in a milkshake. Very well balanced and quite some complexity. Medium finish. In my image more of a lowlander. A discovery that will really please long-time whisky drinkers as well as newbies.
